The entire meeting room fell silent for a moment, and everyone looked at Wu Yuanfan.
Wu Yuanfan racked his brains, but in the end, he still had no clue.
“How would I know?”
From the moment Lin Fengmian had debuted until now, the process had been extremely transparent.
Wu Yuanfan was very clear that he indeed did not have any backing. To be able to get to where he was today was partly because of his strength and partly because of his luck.
There had indeed been a few investors who had expressed their “appreciation” for Lin Fengmian before, but he had been very resistant to these.
Fortunately, he had quickly become popular and was currently at the peak of traffic. When they saw that he had a tough attitude, so they did not really force him.
So this time… Wu Yuanfan did not understand what was going on either.
After pondering the issue for a long time, he decided not to think about it anymore.
“Forget it. I’ll ask him about this when I have the chance. Anyway, it’s fine as long as the problem is solved. Everyone has worked hard today. Let’s tidy up and go back home to rest.”
Ning Li also noticed the changes on Weibo.
She called Lu Huaiyu.
“Second Brother, about Weibo…”
Lu Huaiyu seemed to be very patient as he listened with a faint smile.
Ning Li did not need to ask any other questions. She knew that he was the one who had helped her.
She sighed softly.
“Thank you, Second Brother.”
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows.
“I’ve said it before. We’re all family, so there’s no need to thank me. Also… coincidentally, I also like the periodical that he likes to read.”
The tips of Ning Li’s ears started to feel a little warm.
Lu Huaiyu said lazily, “It’s not a big deal. I just wanted to solve it as soon as possible so that you wouldn’t worry about it. Besides…”
There was a lazy smile in his voice.
“As a brother-in-law, I have to show some respect, don’t you think?”
Ning Li pulled the phone a little further away and gently rubbed her itchy ears.
Give this man an inch and he would take a mile whenever he had the chance.
Lu Huaiyu listened to her silence for a long time and could almost imagine her delicate appearance at the moment.
She had a strong sense of boundaries, so he always liked to tease her.
He thought for a moment, then said with a casual smile, “If you really want to thank me–”
“Thank you, Brother.”
Her sweet and soft voice came from the receiver.
Lu Huaiyu felt as if there was a string in his brain that had instantly snapped.
His throat tightened slightly.
Ning Li stopped when she saw the situation was good, and the corners of her lips curled up slightly.
Lu Huaiyu paused for a moment, then said with a chuckle, “I didn’t hear you clearly just now. Can you say that again?”
Ning Li said softly, “Oh, just forget it then if you didn’t hear me clearly.”
Lu Huaiyu gritted his teeth, knowing that he could not do anything to her.
He lifted his hand and unbuttoned his shirt collar.
“I wanted to say that if you really want to thank me, just remind him to change the way he speaks the next time we meet, but–”
“Ah Li, that works too.”
Early the next morning, Wu Yuanfan found an opportunity to question Lin Fengmian.
“Fengmian, what’s going on? Who was the person who helped you?”
Lin Fengmian was writing a piece of music. His slender fingers danced back and forth on the piano keys. Soon, from a few monotones, they were formed into a melodious and smooth melody.
His eyelids were slightly lowered and his profile seemed quiet, as if he did not hear Wu Yuanfan’s question.
Wu Yuanfan knew that he was always like this when he was focused on his work. Wu Yuanfan was already used to it.
Under normal circumstances, he would not disturb Lin Fengmian as he worked.
However, this time, he was extremely curious.
Besides, if some big shot was really involved, it was better to understand the situation clearly!
So, he could not help but ask again, “Which big shot was it really?”
Lin Fengmian frowned slightly and got up in irritation.
“I don’t know who it is.”
Wu Yuanfan, “…”
Lin Fengmian walked to the sofa that was next to him and lay down. He casually took out a book and covered his face.
He did not know him.
He was not familiar with him.
The news of Yang Jin cheating on his wife caused a stir.
Someone found out that the mistress was a newly graduated C-list actress who was in the same production team as Yang Jin, which was how this had happened.
After a day of silence, Kang Wen finally posted that there was indeed a problem between her and Yang Jin. She begged everyone to give them some time to resolve it.
It could be said that this was having a very effect on Yang Jin because of his affair.
A family matter with a lot of chaos.
No one paid much attention to Lin Fengmian anymore.
Wednesday, 8 am.
The Institute of Physics’ Laboratory Building 601.
Yan Qiu had arrived ahead of schedule and was busy preparing for the group meeting.
Fu Niannian walked in with his computer in his arms and called out casually, “Yo, why Eldest Senior Brother so diligent?”
Yan Qiu felt goosebumps all over his body.
“Fu Niannian, can you speak properly? Who is your Eldest Senior Brother?”
Fu Niannian spread his hands.
“I transferred over from Professor Zhou’s place and have immediately changed from a third-year to second-year doctoral candidate. Don’t I have to address you as Eldest Senior Brother?”
The two were graduate student roommates. Later, Yan Qiu had gone on to study under Shen Zhijin for his Ph.D., and Fu Niannian had followed Vice President Zhou Yao.
By the time Shen Zhijin had come back to build a new team this year, Fu Niannian had already followed Zhou Yao for two years. He had gradually felt that his research direction was somewhat in conflict with Zhou Yao, and instead, he was closer to Shen Zhijin.
After discussing with the academy, he had transferred from Zhou Yao to Shen Zhijin’s team. The price was that he had to repeat the second year of his doctoral studies.
Yan Qiu said seriously, “You can call me dad, but don’t call me Eldest Senior Brother.”
“Eldest Senior Brother?”
A boy in his early twenties came to the door.
It was Tang Yi, Shen Zhijin’s newly recruited Ph.D. student this year.
All three of them were students of Xijing University. Tang Yi had followed Fu Niannian to do his undergraduate thesis.
Thus, they had a good relationship.
Yan Qiu, “…”
Tang Yi looked at Fu Niannian.
Fu Niannian turned on the computer and did not even raise his head.
“If I hear you call me Second Senior Brother, you’re dead.”
Tang Yi, “… Senior Brother Niannian.”
Fu Niannian turned off the computer with a thud.
Yan Qiu was speechless at the behavior of these two.
“This is only the first group meeting. Can you restrain yourself a little? Don’t scare Junior Sister later.”
The two of them immediately perked up.
“The last person the boss recruited is a girl?!”
Yan Qiu mentally facepalmed himself and could not be bothered with them.
Fu Niannian did not give up.
“Eldest Senior Brother, the group meeting starts at 8:30. Why isn’t our Junior Sister here yet?”
Tang Yi pondered.
“Who’s the last one? Shao Min? Or Zhang Zishu? The most outstanding person in the Academy is only–”
Someone knocked on the door.
They turned around and saw a tall, slender, beautiful girl standing at the door.
Tang Yi and Fu Niannian immediately became polite.
Tang Yi looked at her and a name came to his mind.
“… Junior Ning Li?”
Ning Li nodded.
Fu Niannian had some impression of this name as well.
This was the school belle, the new student representative.
Was this… a candidate for the lab assistant?
He smiled and reminded her, “Junior Sister, the selection for lab assistants doesn’t start until 3 pm.”
The freshmen actually did not have much hope, but he did not really want to be discouraging, so he said it in a more tactful way,
“Please come back in the afternoon.”
Ning Li’s expression was calm.
“I’m not here for the selection of lab assistants.
“I’m here for a group meeting.”
Then, under Fu Niannian and Tang Yi’s shocked gazes, Ning Li walked in.
She put down her black backpack and took out her notebook before formally greeting the three of them.
“Hello, Senior Brothers.
“I’m Ning Li.”
